750ml bottle dated 09/14/17
Poured into a snifter shows a dark chocolate brown body, briefly supports a 1/2in cocoa colored head of variably sized bubbles, and leaves the glass clean of any reminder.

Aroma has coconut highlights with chocolate, cocoa, sweetness, and a metallic hint.

Flavor is chocolate and coconut, but therer is also a roast cocoa bean flavor that is distracting. The roastyness does diminish a little with warmth, but never completely goes away for me. Finish is cocoa powder that sticks around.

Mouthfeel is a solid win. Smooth, full, thick, and creamy with no grit.

Overall a nice beer.

Pours a dark mahogany brown with a dark tan head. The aroma is chocolate and coconut. The flavor is the same with some roasted malt, and too sweet for my taste. The feel is thin even for a porter. Overall an okay beer.

750ML bottle that I passed on several times at $20/22 – yeesh. Must be virgin, imported, hand-macheted coconut? Picked up at $15, & I had to think on that. Split with my wife.

The pour is black, with visible carbonation that doesn’t even cover the surface of the beer. Smells like chocolate & light roast – I think there’s coconut, but that might be the power of suggestion.

Fantastic Voyage – where are we going? The cast of Lord of the Flies would have rejected this beer, as they’d been subsisting on coconuts for months. Candy. Chocolates & coconuts with just a quid of roast in the background. Touches of cinnamon & gentle lactose round it out. Smooth. Too sweet to drink like the well of life, but half a bomber will suit my need for sugar just fine.

A very good, solid stout with a lovely touch of coconut – but why the hell in a bomber for a premium price? The easy answer is because idiots like me buy it. A one & done at the price, but attractive in a smaller, less pricey format.

Nice milk stout base with a touch of sweetness, oaky vanilla, and smooth creaminess. The coconut is the star with lots of toasted coconut flavor and aroma.
